More About the Author

As F.M. Meredith I write the Rocky Bluff P.D. crime series. Many people know me was Marilyn Meredith, the author of the Deputy Tempe Crabtree mystery series.

I became interested in writing about law enforcement when my son-in-law was a police officer and over coffee told me all about his adventures. He also took me on a ride-along and I was hooked. I belong to the Public Safety Writers Association and have many friends in law enforcement.

All of our children are grown and have blessed us with many grand and great-grandchildren. We used to live at the beach in a beach community much like Rocky Bluff. We now live in the foothills of the Southern Sierra with a resemblance to Bear Creek where Deputy Tempe Crabtree and her husband live.

E. M. Meredith is a seasoned writer with a long list of successful books in her resume. ANGEL LOST shows us her skillful writing style and her ability to make her characters capture our interest and care about what happens to them. This is another in the popular Rocky Bluff series but also can be enjoyed as a standalone. We quickly learn the backstories and then are moved ahead into this story showing an intriguing set of characters moving through their different lives. Less a traditional mystery than a snapshot of people dealing with problematic situations which they handle gracefully, some more easily than others. Just like in real life!

I am so sad! Not with the author or the novel itself, but with the fact that it's the 7th book in the Rocky Bluff PD series, but the FIRST one for me. F.M. Meredith has got some rockin' skills. There were some errors in the book but it was only due to it being an ARC copy. But, pushing through the errors and looking instead to the quality of the plot line, and the great characters, I found I really liked this book.

Set in Rocky Bluff, California Officer Stacy Wilbur is the head of the Vice squad. Two weeks away from marrying Doug, who happens to be her superior, the town is faced with a mysterious crime: there's a "flasher" on the loose. A man who preys on women when they jog. So, to try and solve the crime, Officer Wilbur offers herself up as a decoy to try and lure the flasher out to her and then arrest him. Now, faced with trying to solve the crime, along with the help of newbie transfer Vaughn Aragon, Stacy has no choice but to catch this guy. It could mean life or death, or a wedding that won't happen.

Mixed up with the crazy stress of the other department officers' lives, some recent home robberies and a mysterious angel that appears out of no where in a store side window, will Stacy Wilbur become lost before her wedding? Can theses circumstances and mysterious happenings be solved before time runs out?

The suspense of this book will keep the reader hooked. Turning the page to see what happens next is always a must and when you have to set the book down, it will stay will you as you think about trying to put the pieces together and solve the case, or in this case, cases.

I really enjoyed this novel and am going to make it a priority to go back and read the first 6 installments.

Format: Kindle Edition
In Angel Lost, the author does a great job of advancing the plot through the vehicle of multiple viewpoints. At first I was confused by the shift in points of view, but I soon became engrossed with each character's thoughts and actions.

I particularly liked Stacey Wilbur, the plucky, unselfish officer, who showed no compunction about putting her life on the line for the common good.

Though this book is seventh in the Rocky Bluff series, it could easily be read as a standalone. However, once readers have enjoyed Angel Lost, they may want to catch up with what they've missed before!

Format: Paperback
Angel Lost is the seventh in F. M. Meredith's Rocky Bluff Police Department series, and fans of this series will be delighted to learn that it delivers everything we have come to expect in these books - characters that feel like neighbors and a handful-and-a-half of subplots all neatly woven together. Detective Doug Milligan is set to marry Officer Stacey Wilbur. As their wedding day approaches, he is unhappy about not getting to spend much time with her but even more unhappy about her assignment to jog the beach in hopes of catching a pervert who has been exposing himself to women. Abel Navarro's mother is showing signs of Alzheimer's, the new transfer from the LAPD has a problem that won't be solved merely by transferring to a small town, and a reflection on a plate glass window downtown is seen by some as a sign from God because it appears to be an angel. Others see it as just a quirky reflection. The Rocky Bluff PD sees it as a distraction because of the crowds that gather each night to see it. Just as these things seem to be coming to a head, a serial kidnapper and perhaps murderer who has been working his way south from Oregon shows up. Meredith wraps everything up in a most satisfactory fashion. These books are a sort of cross between The Waltons and Hill Street Blues, and I hope there are many more to come.

In Angel Lost we return again to Rocky Bluff, California. It is good to be back. I feel those who live there are good friends by now. Since I last visited, Doug and Stacy have set their wedding day. Gordon still seems to have an affinity for being in the wrong place at the wrong time and is still living with Doug, something will have to change with the newlyweds move in.

Abel has to face some disturbing news about his mother and Barbara and Ryan are still going strong.

There is a new face in town, Vaughn Aragon, a officer who's transfered in from L.A.. Vaughn's hoping to leave some demons behind, but he finds out that isn't easily done.

And something even more, an angel has showed up in the window of a store. A sight that attracts many viewers and a mulitple of opinions. Is it real, or just a weird refelction of light? If it's real, than what does it mean, a blessing, a warning to get their acts together?

Angel Lost is a great story. I stayed up until after midnight to finish it, and that's not like me at all. Give it a read and see how it affects your sleeping habits.
